Tim Tebow not stopping the hype around him is apparently an issue.

Ever since the Jaguars made the decision to sign Tim Tebow as a tight end, he hasn’t said much at all about joining the squad outside of an initial statement. Well, his silence as the hype grows is apparently a problem for some. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

“Because if there’s one common complaint I’ve heard from his past coaches about it, it’s not that he’s actively fueling it. Moreso, it’s that he doesn’t do anything to calm it down. And not talking is probably the best thing he can do to calm it down. For now, anyway,” Albert Breer wrote Monday about the hype surrounding Tebow’s arrival in Jacksonville.

This is honestly so stupid. Is this where we’re at now in the NFL? If so, then it’s super dumb and kind of sad.

Tebow keeping his head low and not addressing the situation should be applauded, which Breer also suggested. He shouldn’t have to go out there and talk to the media about the hype or address it at all.

That’s not his job. That’s the job of the coaching staff.

Now, if Urban Meyer thinks Tebow should address the media, then so be it, but I see no reason it’s necessary.

If the building in the building have a problem with that, then it’s on them.

Let Tebow just get to work and the rest will take care of itself.
